Introduction to Working on Remote Systems with SSH

Date: Monday, October 7, 2019, 13:30-17:00
Location: LRZ Building, Garching/Munich, Boltzmannstr. 1, LRZ Hörsaal

The course provides an introduction to working on remote systems using Secure Shell (SSH). SSH is a cryptographic network protocol which is typically used to login and execute commands on remote (GNU/Linux) systems.

The course will guide participants to install and configure a SSH client on their systems. Different applications for remote access and file transfer will be introduced. A conceptual and practical introduction to SSH-keys will be given, followed by a discussion of more advanced features like SSH-tunneling and custom configuration options.

This material will be presented as a combination of lectures, demos and hands-on sessions, with a focus on the latter. There will be breaks during the session.

Participants will gain essential knowledge and the skills neccessary to connect to and interact with different systems of the LRZ supercomputing and cloud infrastructure.


All participants are expected to bring their own laptops.
